Kyung Won Na

Kyung Won Na

Former Korean congresswoman Kyung Won Na spoke at GWSB last month about her experience as chairwoman of the recent 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games in South Korea – the most successful winter games in Special Olympics’ history. Na also discussed her experience in her country’s congress, and the national impact of the recent Special Olympics, which served as a test case for South Korea’s hosting of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.

Na, who has a doctorate in international law, was a member of the 17th and 18th National Assembly of Joong-gu in Seoul. Prior to her election, she was national spokesperson for the ruling National Party. Na is a member of Special Olympics International’s board of directors and a co-representative of Korea Parents Association for the Disabled.
